Product Description

Kate Silver’s back in town, and her dead motherjust won’t leave her alone.

Kate usually spends her days dressing Hollywood A-listers, but after her estranged mother dies she finds herself elbow-deep in flour in her parents’ bakery . . . in Deer Lick, Montana. She thought she’d left small-town life far, far behind, but it seems there are a few loose ends.

The boy she once loved, Deputy Matt Ryan, is single and sexy and still has a thing for her . . . and handcuffs.

Her mother, who won’t follow the white light,is determined to give maternal advice from beyondthe grave.

And somehow Kate’s three-day stay has, well . . . extended. She never planned to fill her mother’s pie-baking shoes—she prefers her Choos, thank you very much. But with the help of a certain man in uniform,Kate quickly learns that sometimes second chancesare all the more sweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good 3 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Kate arrives back in town to attend her mother's funeral but she doesn't have an easy time of it as she left her home town on bad terms and some people don't want her to forget. As she spends time back at home she starts to feel guilty about staying away and not making things up with her mother. She soon feels under pressure when her work demands her back in Hollywood but her family need her in Deer Lick to help run the bakery. But as she gets involved in the bakery she starts to enjoy herself and takes it upon herself to update it and really throws herself into it. The only thing that making it hard for her is her first love Matt who she never forgot. She finds herself still attracted to him and whenever she is close to him she finds it very hard to stay away but soon she will be leaving again. Kate has managed to achieve quite a lot while she was away by building up a successful stylist career and that means it's hard for her to stay but the town soon grows on her and she slowly realises that she is a small town girl after all.

Matt has spent 10 years feeling hurt after Kate disappeared and left him so when he sees her again he isn't happy. He has made a life for himself and is ready to settle down when Kate comes back. He is also deeply hurt by the death of Kate's mother as he had grown close to her when Kate went away. But for some reason he can't stay away from Kate and ends up being involved with her again.

Both of them have to work out what they both want before they have any chance of making things work.

This a very amusing and passionate story. The most amusing part is Kate's mother coming back from the grave to haunt her and give her advice but it also helps Kate get over her death and come to terms with the past.

This was the first book I read of Candis Terry and can't wait to read the next one, as this one kept me entertained throughout.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sexy Hot Read 19 July 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
She'd just go back for her mother's funeral and then return to her fashion job. After all, she had no need to stay there and no time to do so.

Ms. Terry makes her main female character, Katie, a strong young woman who will do whatever she needs to succeed in the fashion world. Her mother didn't think it was possible, so Katie left town ten years ago and never went back. The author adds her mother as a ghost, which is very interesting way of solving past differences. While this is all fantasy, it does sound like a conversation that should have taken place in real life. And her mom is a great character; who else appears in her old Buick with Tom Jones playing on the radio?

Besides the family issue, Katie learns her boyfriend from high school still has interest in her. He's a local cop running for sheriff and a hunk besides, but her life in the glitzy fashion world of Los Angeles is where she loves living now. Ms. Terry has given both of her main love interests a chip on their shoulders, and they are doing their best to keep it there and not get hurt anymore.

The story is well paced and the author easily gets you emotionally involved in her characters. (I wanted to pick Katie up and shake her!) I really enjoyed her mother's ghost giving her advice. Whenever Katie got huffy about it, Mom's ghost faded out. Now if we could just do that in real life...

I kept turning pages through this read because I was anxious to find out how Ms. Terry resolved the issues between the two lovers. The sex between them was incredible, but could they merge their visions of the future?

Why not buy yourself a copy and see? And, there are two more stories coming out in this series about her brother and sister. I bet Mom has some advice for them, too! For a fun, sexy read you should grab a copy of Second Chance at the Sugar Shack.

Wow! What a wonderful storyline and beginning to this series. The author has created a storyline that will hook you from the first page. I absolutely loved the addition of the secondary characters into this story, especially the dearly departed mother. I hated to see this story end, but I am anxiously awaiting starting the next story and the continuation of getting to know more of the characters in the wonderful town.
Definitely a five plus star rating for the book and the authors writing style. this book is definitely a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun! 27 Oct 2011

Candis Terry is a wonderfully talented writer who makes us laugh and wraps us in the joy of the great story she's created. Her characters are full and believable, real people. Katie never planned to come home. Once home, she never planned to stay long, but here she is: helping her dad out because he needs her even as it means giving up her dream. The hero is wonderful, sexy. How can she resist him? Not easy. My favorite part--which really surprised me--is Katie's mother. I don't like paranormal elements and didn't realize there was one until Mom appeared. She is marvelous. I looked forward to her everytime the car radio went on. All in all, this is a well-written book with lots of laughs. I highly recommend it and can't wait to read the next one which is coming soon!

Loved this series! Loved both Katie and Matt. Matt was super hot and I'm glad they were able to work through their issues and get their happily ever after. Loved how the dead Mom came back to help guide her children.
